Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study - Search Alphabetically

Program Description

IV Therapy Technicians perform delegated nursing tasks related to IV therapy. IVT technicians can set up, maintain and disconnect IV lines. Most IV Therapy Technicians have other certifications, such as nursing, phlebotomy or nurse support/patient care tech. This course can be taken alone, but there are no jobs for persons with just this training.

Program Outcomes

Successful Completion:

CCBC Credential:

Students will have access to a Continuing Education academic record (transcript).

Career Opportunities:

This course is a great “add-on” skill for someone already working in the patient care arena. The majority of hospitals and clinical facilities do not hire someone with only this skill.

Program Length

4-8 weeks

Courses start in January and October at CCBC Essex and in April at CCBC Randallstown.
